I purchased my 2015 non-ES brand new. Rode it all over northern Italy in the Alps and Dolomites, and then in the US. Put over 13,000 miles on it. The bike was flawless. Always easy to handle, did exactly what I wanted, felt very stable on the highway at fast speeds or in high cross-winds, and was very forgiving at any speed and gear. Ergonomics was perfect, weather protection was perfect, and it brought a smile to my face.

Wasn't riding it as much due to living in a more congested area (with terrible drivers), no longer had a garage, and had other family responsibilities to think about (costs and risks). I traded it in as I bought a new car. I know why I made that decision, but regret giving up the ST and miss it.
Sorry you sold it. I am kinda in a same situation as I have a Super Tenere and have just purchased a new Yamaha Tenere 700 and love it also. I can't justify both bikes along with a street legal WR450 but I don't want to get rid of any of them. I think the only answer for me is to stop buying motorcycles.

I bought mine new in 17. I have just over 26000 km on it now. I find it has been a wonderful bike. Better than expected fuel economy and the best gravel road bike I have owned. I had a KLR before this and the super tenere beats it in every aspect. Great all around bike.
